I know this is not the typical 'vintage' bicycle, but it is a limited production and very cool bike! It's a Red Line 'Rain City' chopper, there were only 1,500 made and this is number 1,048. It's unique in that it has front and rear disc brakes and it's belt drive (instead of chain).
The only thing I've changed is the seat, as the original is so unconfortable that is was barely rideable! The only other thing I might change is the rear hub, it really needs a 3-speed to make riding long distances easier.

    Nice ride. Are those 20 inch rims ? Nexis makes a great hub. I have their 7 speed internal hub and love it.
